Bass University classes give all bass anglers the tools and education that they need to catch more big bass. Classroom instruction features a dynamic instructor line-up of new pros, superstars, and legends of bass fishing. Unlike a typical seminar, The Bass University presents six top pro angler instructors at each class location, giving the students an in-depth look at each instructor's mind-set and unique fishing style. This class is the perfect opportunity to probe into the way of a champion professional angler thinks and fishes. To learn more and register, click here.
Activities for the entire family...
Kids Trout Pond located in the Fishing Hall is something that can't be missed! The giant artificial pond, complete with a water wheel and faux foliage is stocked with several hundred rainbow and golden trout. Five dollars buys five minutes pond-side, a chance to catch one of the fish, and a lifetime of memories with your little ones!
Kids Casting Contest located in the Hunting Outfitter Hall continues the tradition of giving kids the chance to experience what it's really like to handle a fishing rod and reel. Kids can test their skills in the art of casting, flipping and pitching a plastic jig to a very colorful target. This just might be the start of their love for the outdoors.
Hawg Trough located in the Fishing Hall always attracts the crowds! This 2,500 gallon fish tank stocked with 50-100 fish is always worth the stop and stare. Get a demonstration and learn something new each time from world-best anglers, and maybe even have the chance to participate!
